Our Take

In what seems to be something of a rarity today, Bulova is an American based watch manufacturer, first found in 1875, making it just less than a century younger than the country itself. By 1911, they were selling large quantities of watches and clocks and set up a workshop in Switzerland where this watch was likely produced. Set in a stainless steel case measuring around 36mm in diameter and 40mm from lug to lug. The gold dial is clean and elegant with gold stick markers and the logo in the 12 position, quickset date at 3 o’clock, and beautiful sweep seconds covered by a spotless acrylic crystal which is like new. The coin rimmed bezel is gold plated, as well as the crown, featuring the logo, do note there is some fading on the plating. The back case has the hallmark and serial numbers 1D15M. The Bulova 25 jewels automatic movement is clean and running as it should, keeping good time. The strap has been replaced with a nice dark brown genuine leather croc style strap and will fit a wrist of approximately 7.5” or 19cm. The watch comes without the original box or papers, but a gift box will accompany it. Please don’t use this watch near water as we cannot guarantee water resistance.

About Bulova

In what seems to be something of a rarity today, Bulova is an American based watch manufacturer, first found in 1875, making it just less than a century younger than the country itself. Today, the Bulova brand is owned by Citizen and has been since 2008.

Perhaps Bulova’s biggest achievement was that it was the first privately owned watch that saw active service on the moon, after a failure of another well-known brand’s watch. The Bulova Chronograph Model #88510/01 later sold for $1.625 million.

Many of the vintage Bulova models are branded under the ‘Accutron’ name, which lays claim to being the first electronic watch, thanks to its ‘tuning fork’ design – giving the watch a faint, high-pitched hum.
